SHAKER LIFE | WINTER 2017 47 CHIP TILTON Malvern resident John C. “Chip” Tilton and his colleagues are researching ways to use the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) for treating diseases. By Jennifer Kuhel In medical school, Chip Tilton knew there was a place for him in the world of medicine. That place just wouldn’t be seeing patients day-today. His curiosity led him to the lab. “The way I like to think about problems is by looking at the big picture, then understanding the root causes of diseases and making little strides at the fundamental level,” explains Tilton, an associate professor and the director of Immunobiology at the Case Western Reserve University Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics. He joined the university six years ago following research positions at the University of Pennsylvania and the National Institutes of Health, and his family settled in a Malvern home after falling in love with Shaker’s tree-lined neighborhoods and schools.
